A friend sent me a movie his brother made.
It was almost a suicide note.
There was dreamy, sad music playing.
I replaced it with this song, made one edit, and sent it back.
It seemed to help.
I understand why people might not want to be here.
I don't, sometimes.
Sometimes I'm numb and painfully tender all at once.
Sometimes it's hard to find reasons to stay.
The songs help remind me.
Making them, listening, sharing.
I really hope that what I bring to this world helps you.
Even a little.
That's one of the reasons I choose to stay.
